Chloe van der Westhuizen, the 4-year-old girl who was struck in the head during a gang shooting in Hanover Park on Thursday last week, has reportedly lost her eye and will undergo a second operation this week.
According to IOL, the second operation is scheduled for doctors to try and remove the bullet from her head.
Chloe was one of the five people who were shot and wounded when a gunman opened fire in Algoa Court.
EWN reported on Monday that the girl remained in hospital with serious injuries.
Hundreds of Hanover Park residents gathered on Sunday to pray for Chloe.
The Kingdom Christian Church, along with the Leon Jacobs Foundation and the Jacomus Foundation, hosted a service where they called on everyone to unite and pray for Chloe, IOL said.
“We came out in our numbers to say, ‘listen Mr Gunman, and you that gave the instruction (to shoot), we want to send a strong message to all involved in this gang war, that life is about decisions and what you decide is what your life will be,” Pastor Leon Jacobs was quoted as saying during the service.
